Re: Leaf Plus - Why so low inventory?

So, all of our local Nissan’s have almost no Leaf stock.

Fox Nissan in Ann Arbor, MI has a very nice SV Plus out front ready to go! Check it out! Go support one of my favorite local fast charging spots! :D

I have a special interest in seeing how the battery pack mounts on the Plus model. viewtopic.php?f=34&t=27600&start=180 I thought it would be hard to find one to have a look at, but got lucky on my first try locally. (I looked at a dealer near Chicago a while ago on a lark, before getting a 62kWh pack)

I also took a shot of the window sticker. Here it is: https://photos.app.goo.gl/YSYsXAdkR6J5CNzt8

If you can't find one locally, dealers do trades or go buy it and drive it home. With 200 miles of range, you can drive about anywhere with today's DCFC infrastructure! :D

PS, if any plus owners enjoy looking 'under the hood', would you please take pictures of the battery mounting with the covers off? They are just a bunch of 10mm bolts, and push pins clips, pretty easy. Fun stuff to look at up under there!

Sticker shock! At that price, even a Tesla M3 begins to look appealing.

There are a bunch of Leaf Pluses out here in Denver. I was at a Nissan dealership today and saw a dozen sitting in a row. No regular 40kWh ones though. Well, two, and the one I wanted (a black SV standard) was sold minutes before I arrived.

In Colorado, we have a $5000 state tax break, a $3500 rebate from the electric utility and $1000 Nissan Cash - all of which is taken off of the purchase price. The payments are lower and so are the registration fees!

CO is the best place to buy a Leaf.

Even that Michigan Leaf is more like 31K after rebates and dealer discounts are applied. Still much cheaper (and nicer) then the stand range 3.

Inventory must be low, because they are shipping the US Leaf's to Germany. Look, it just crushed the Model 3 last month.
